I am so thankful that my friends in California are all safe. Nick and Jayne Warrilow are back in their house, busy with cleanup. My heart goes out to those who have not only lost property but loved ones. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

This level of corruption must never be allowed in South Africa again. Proper checks and balances must be in place and the levels of governance raised across the board. How did nobody notice that Zuma's role in state capture cost SA R500bn?

I love Mondays! It's always a busy day but the feeling of a fresh start and new possibilities is exhilarating and gets my creativity going. Have a good one, everyone!

Are you aware how significant today is? It's the 11th day of the 11th month. 2018 is also an 11 universal year, which means that, at 11:11:11 this morning, it will be 11:11:11:11:11:11. You will not experience this too many times in our lifetime, as the last time this happened was in 2009; before that it was 1910! So take some time today, be conscious of this special moment and use it to envision and set your intention for the life you want to live. Have a special day!

The first AI news anchor has been let loose on the world! 'He' was introduced by Xinhua, China's state-run press agency. Apparently, these anchors are digital composites of human newsreaders, using synthesized voices.

From a purely ROI point of view, it probably makes sense, as these AI anchors can work 24/7, not having to rest or take sick days like a human news anchor. I will miss Peter Ndoro reading the news if this had to happen at the SABC!

Which bodes the question, who will be next to be replaced by AI? Maybe they can start with some politicians and State Presidents.

It's Friday and all I'm planning for this weekend is what I'm going to eat. It explains a lot! What will you be doing (eating) this weekend?

These past few days I have seen many interviews and news conferences with leaders from across the world, believing they need to shout and be harsh so others will follow them. We are created to instinctively follow leaders, so I started seeing people in everyday life becoming loud and brash, trying to get their point across. Maybe it's time that we simply awaken to the fact that instead of 'firing cannons' we can just shine and people will follow the light.
